These upper molars are from a horse. Each molar has a lophodont pattern, which is an elongated and transverse ridge covered by a hard enamel surface on the top to improve grinding action. This type of tooth structure increases the enamel surface available for cutting hard and abrasive food. Early horses ate courser material such as bark, twigs and leaves compared to modern horses that primarily eat grass. This piece is 2.8cm thick and measures roughly 9cm x 3.2cm.

This large molar tooth is from a horse. This mammal had 3 molars and 3 premolars on each side of the back jaw. Molars, such as this one, ground down on abrasive fibrous foods like grass on a daily basis, causing a great deal of wear for the molars. This molar is 2cm thick and measures 8.75cm x 3cm.
